In that rare occurrance, it would be pay off to just type 'iexplore' in the run line. But... I'm dirty like that. BTW... whenever you run into a site that doesn't work in FF... let me know. I haven't found one for a while.

I find them on rare occasion but then again, I tend to hang around the seedier side of the internet.

Oh, pron sites. I getcha. ;-)

The only site I have ever found to not work in Firefox properly was Microbeta.net, but I think it's been since fixed. Not going to try now since I don't feel like Firefox crashing if it wasn't, heh.

I recently got Style XP and like it A LOT. Here's my current theme/background.


As for pages not working in FF, I found an extension that works perfectly. It's called IE Tab. Just click the Firefox icon at the bottom right of the page and it'll automatically reopen the page in an IE tab. I keep the IE icon for the rare case I want to goto a website directly and it work.

Hmm, apparently I never posted mine? Odd. Here it is, then.

Yes, I'm on XP and I'm using Litestep. I'm using a slightly different theme/bar/VWM now though. I need to get a pic of the change, but it's not that significant. I still have the same background image.

Hey thanks for the post Kilamon! I looked up Litestep and I LOVE it!

What theme are you using? Some of these are hard to get working 100% correct right of the install... But hey it looks and works sexy!

I like that theme for litestep. Oh and the walppaper is currently paused on that. I have a program called Automatic wallpapper Changer that changes the wallpapper at a preset time from a selected folder.

@Madstork: I dont remember which one is in that image I posted, but my current one is an OTS2 Bar, Vitreolus [sic]. Are you using the wallpaper changer from litestep? There's a plugin for that. You know you can mod in whatever plugin you want from shellfront.org right? My favorite bar style no longer works in the new build but I have it in my archives. I might go back and edit it up to fix the bugs. It was more in-line with the Tron theme I have going (had blue glowy lines and stuff).
